The definition of professional negligence is “a subset of the general rules on negligence to cover the situation in which the defendant has represented him or herself as having more than average skills and abilities".
In basic terms professional negligence is where a professional person (this could be a financial adviser, valuer, surveyor, accountant or solicitor) fails to perform to the standards required of them, resulting in their client suffering damage or loss. A professional person has a duty of care to their client to perform their job to a reasonable standard and with reasonable care.
Negligence occurs if the professional has not provided a reasonable level of skill and care and the level of service or standard of work that you could reasonably expect from a professional working in those circumstances.
We can help you to assess the prospects of your claim and, in appropriate cases where we assess the prospects to be sufficient, help you to find suitable funding to pursue your claim and manage the financial risk of bringing court proceedings.
